Route information
This spectacular route takes you from the city and out along the Brighton seafront. Featuring incredible crowd support cheering you on to the finish line, and a new-and-improved route for 2023 taking you past more communities.
Marathon Distance: 26.2 miles Elevation: 958ft (ascent) / 1007ft (descent) *elevation calculated based on the 2022 route and subject to change with the new route
Terrain: Road
Starting at Preston Park, your course will take you through the city and past iconic landmarks including the Royal Pavilion. You will then make your way to the coast and towards the beautiful headland village of Ovingdean, before running along the Brighton and Hove seafront attractions including the famous beach huts, the remains of the West Pier, and the Brighton Palace Pier. You’ll head towards your new finish line at Hove Lawns, beside the sea for a quick dip to cool off once you experience that awesome post-finish high.
Earlier in the course there will be a few undulating climbs, but the route will flatten out for the final miles to allowing you to keep your stride as you push towards the finish line.
With unparalleled community support, the atmosphere of this marathon will be truly iconic as you’re cheered on by thousands of spectators throughout the route and with several music stations to ramp up the atmosphere.
There will also be plenty of on-course support including paramedics, water stations, gel stations and more.
Pacers
A Pacing Team will be running with you on Race Day – further information on the times they will be pacing will be in your Participant Instructions, issued in the months preceding the event.
Look out for them in their respective start corrals in Preston Park, they will have flags with their respective times attached to them.
Marathon Cut-Off Time
The roads around the course must follow a strict re-opening schedule. The organisers have worked this out so that even if you continued walking fast, you will be able to finish the race on the actual road surface of the route.
However, anyone moving around the course at a slower than 6-hour 40m pace (that is slower than 4 miles an hour), may be told to move on to the pavement and, in effect, regard themselves as a pedestrian. Most of the last five miles are not on public roads, so this should not be a problem.
